Using the z/OS® Template

The z/OS template allows Process Manager users to schedule mainframe jobs from within their Process Manager flows. The z/OS template is ready for use; simply ensure that zos_Template.xml is located in the JS_HOME/work/templates directory.

About the z/OS jobs

Process Manager uses the job you define to submit an LSF® job (referred to here as a proxy job), which in turn file transfers JCL to the mainframe to run. The job output is captured and file transferred to an output file location you specify.

Use the z/OS template

  • Ensure zos_Template.xml is installed in the user’s templates directory JS_HOME/work/templates. You can define a z/OS job from the Flow Editor or from the command line.
